Ah good one, thanks!

Sorry folk but it turns out the original venue is closed on Boxing Day. Marielle's suggestion is still within walking distance of Liverpool Street Station, so hopefully we'll see you all there!

Not sure if this place is BYOB or not, but there is a very good off license on Brick Lane so no worries there.

Christmas love to all you London lot. I'm trapped in Essex and will fraily raise a glass in your honours this evening.

Not going to make this one I'm afraid, but have a great time everyone.

Excellent meetup. There was even a penguin in attendance.

Punkyyy. Plus a whole load of space, time, agro, possible injury and money saved by not participating in the Boxing Day Sales.

Good food, good company, good conversation, what better way to wind down the old year. Very nice chatting with you folks.

And since someone mentioned a January meetup how does North London work for folks? Mrs Mutant & I like to wander through Camden Town on a Saturday afternoon every now and then, and we'd be due for a visit in about one months time.

There is an absolutely lovely Tapas restaurant we frequent where not only is the food wonderful but the margaritas are grande y fuerte, so maybe we'll get out of the East End (*cough* ghetto!) next time around?

I'll have my pix up shortly.

Sorry I couldn't make it, but I appear to be in Japan. I have noticed, however, that the success of a meetup is in inverse proportion to my proximity to it, so I expect you had marvellous fun. Perhaps next time I could go to Jupiter, for the general good.
